To meet the diverse needs of composition students, Sinking Your Teeth into Composition: Teaching English Using "Quartier de Ia Madeleine" offers English teachers an additional resource to supplement lectures and textbooks. Vincenzo Natali's "Quartier de Ia Madeline," the 15th
short film in the feature film Paris, je t'aime, offers insight into several composition fundamentals, which this guide will explain. First, this guide introduces "Quartier de Ia Madeleine" and explores its overall value in the composition classroom. Second, it investigates Emmanuel Benbihy's film assignment that created Paris, jet 'aime, and how Benbihy's assignment is akin to composition assignments. Third, by examining the organization and structure of "Quartier de Ia Madeleine," teachers can unpack how this construction parallels the introductions, bodies, and conclusions of students' papers. Forth, by looking at the Aristotelian, Toulmin, and Rogerian arguments in Natali's film, students can recognize these rhetorical devices and begin using them in their own writing. Fifth, this guide explains how the evolution of "Quartier de La Madeleine," through storyboard and behind-the-scenes featurette, offers insights into students' drafting, from revision to proofreading. English teachers are encouraged to use any or all of this work to supplement their composition instruction.
